The Phantom doesn't need, and really shouldn't have an input regulator to run HPA.
Because they're tuned to run off of 12-grams, Phantoms are perfectly happy to drink the full 800psi output pressures most tanks put out.
Without knowing exactly what sort of Phantom you have, especially the type of grip, it's hard to say what exactly you would need to put a bottomline ASA on it and run a line to the valve, but it shouldn't cost $140.

But this is true to the same extent for any paintball gun, snipers included, and I'd still counter that many upgrades, particularly .45 grips and freak-bored barrels always raise a Phantom's resale value by a good margin.
